In the science class, the teacher arranged an assignment: go home to grow garlic or onions and observe their growth.
After returning home, I took a few small cloves of garlic and buried it in the shallows, hoping that it would germinate soon.
I have to go see it several times a day. The pot was quiet, and the garlic lay down under the mud quilt and seemed to be brewing something.
Today, when I got home from school, I ran to the balcony as usual. Surprise! The garlic petals arched into the soil, and a small green head emerged.
Wow, the little heads are coming out, tender and green, like the mouth of a duckling that is up! Some of the buds have straightened up from the mud quilts, and they have taken longer, emerald green leaves, which are 4 or 5 cm long.
In the morning, the morning sun is warm and comfortable. The garlic buds have completely broken out of the ground, and some have taken out two leaves, but the small leaves are still hiding behind the large green leaves, a shy look.
The green leaves grow taller and stretch in the sunset, seemingly saying: What a bright world!
These days, under sufficient sunshine and moisture, the garlic seedlings grow tall and tall. However, the weather is getting colder and the long leaves are a bit awkward. Mom said that the weather will be warmer next spring, let’s plant it again.
If winter comes, can spring be far behind? I am looking forward to the arrival of spring!
